Thanks for the answers Peter! I appreciate your assistance and this great tool!

I was able to find my .cfg file. 

I had a few more questions for you:

(1) How would I go about adding access to a 3rd party or custom GTK
widget to the GTK Server. For example:

(2) Are you the sole maintainer of the GTK-Server? I hope I can
contribute in the future, although I'm just beginning to learn C++.

(3) Can you use Glade to assemble you GTK GUI and then call the
methods with newLISP via the GTK-Server? I am wondering if there is a
way to integrate Glade with the GTK-Server. I've managed to get Glade
installed on Windows, and it looks like a useful GUI Builder for GTK.
I hope I can use it.
